My Stampin'UP! stamping blitz

This is the result of my latest stamping blitz. I used only SU! products. My main focus was on using the Sew Suite stamp set (#122009 clear) and the Sweet Stitches DSP (#121781) from the Occasions Mini. I used my technique that I discovered a couple of months ago where I just start with about a dozen card bases and start adding paper. Then I decide what I want to add with stamped images and punched shapes. I did this blitz over the course of a few days. I'm thinking it's faster than what I used to do. We'll see my next blitz with another beautiful stamp set from the Occasions Mini catalog.
I hope you don't mind a bunch of pictures so here goes....

Well.. there you have it. They're not fancy but they were quick and easy.

I hope you enjoyed the blitz. Let me know if you have any questions about any of my cards.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I really appreciate it when you leave comments too.

Happy stampin',

Hot Apron

I made this apron Saturday for a dear friend. It has red with white pin dots fabric for the pockets and ties. The sides of the apron curve around to the back. I fussy cut some of the peppers out of the background fabric and appliqued them onto the pockets for a little different touch. Red bias tape goes along all the outside edges of the apron.
I used my iPhone 4 to make the picture so it's not as good as what my Canon camera could do. I just wanted to share something with you today.
Hope you like it and I so appreciate you stopping by today.


My little helper

Our fur baby, Mr. Whiskers, loves to come into the Strawberry Studio if he knows I'm in there. He just checks things out then wants back outside.
He showed up at our doorstep about 1-1/2 years ago. We took him to the vet and had him fixed and got all the shots he needed and he's just the best pet. My husband wasn't too crazy about cats before Mr. Whiskers came along, but he loves this little fellow and Mr. Whiskers loves my husband. He chooses to sit with him most all the time and just sits with me if hubby isn't home. How funny!

I was going to share a bunch of cards with you today but my pictures are still in my camera. So... I'll share those pictures tomorrow hopefully.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
